Automatic updates strike again.

I thought that auto updates were supposed to make things better? Oh, silly me, of course not. They're supposed to make sure you are super secure by not letting anyone use the machine.

they change a few here and there, windows 10 is basically unusable if without SSD nowadays, damn it windows, microsoft,

It can also be amber. Some computer museums might still have old green or amber monochrome monitors on display. It all depended upon which phosphor was painted on the inside IIRC. Something like that anyway.

Windows10 v1903

It's all about the experience

https://pureinfotech.com/windows-10-1903-19h1-april-2019-update-features/

The webpage mentions the word "experience" 39 times. MS are desperate to change your experience.

MS is now kind enough to allow you to uninstall some of those unwanted default apps. Thanks MS.

MS adds "reserved storage" to steal part of your HDD/SSD to ensure there is enough space to load more updates and features you didn't want.
Quote:
Users won’t be able to delete the reserved storage ....
That's right. MS will commandeer some of your storage and there is nothing you can do about it. You are just a lowly "user", MS knows what is best for you. Yield to their authority.

Hate all these features, damn it Windows 10,

forced updates, upgrades, no way to skip, Laughing insane I said,

Every apps now embedded with telemetry, all there to assist you and Windows 10 developers, StartMenuExperienceHost.exe, never ending shits,

The bad thing is, I will keep on installing 1903 to customers when it is available, Apple is actually in a very strategic moment right now, they could win Windows 10 users by offering Mac OS X special license to non Apple made x86/x64 machines, I believe they could capture at least half of Windows 10 market share in 1 year.

Buy Apple's shares right now, since this is what they are going to execute this year. Smile

The Find My Files section, you can now select the Enhanced mode, which is a new feature that enables the operating system to search all your folders and drives, instead of only your documents, pictures, videos, and desktop.

Once you plug in a pendrive or external hard drive, Windows gonna index them all without your consent, and thumbnail everything it likes, cache whatever it thinks you might access them offline later, damn you Windows 10.

Suggesting Apple over Microsoft is like jumping from the frying pan into the fire.

Haha, sure. But joking aside, Apple couldn't do that any more than Linux can. Unless Apple can convince all the hardware manufacturers to write new drivers for OS X. That is the strong point of Windows, the driver base. Which no other OS has. Apple can write drivers for their own hardware, but outside of their limited hardware range the diversity is very large.

If Apple willing to join hand with hackintosh, most likely they will find success in no time, 1 year.

Between 2 evils, Apple seems like a lesser evil.

If I am Apple CEO, I would just sell the license without any kind of support, It just a legal MAC OS license period, those who dare to venture got to do it on their own, finding certified hackintosh hardware and so on,

An OS is a tool, not an experience, IMO.

It's like going to a general hardware store and you no longer find hammers for sale. They are now called nailing experience assistants. Plain old hacksaws are now called material removal and separation experience devices. Cars are now called point-to-point personalised transport experience carriages.

imo, OS is a tool that required interaction with users, the result of interaction is what we called experiences, any tool that able to give you some sort of unique positive experience is the one tool you gonna keep, for very long time,

experiences is what cause us to conclude some sort of perspective / judgement on any particular tool, so far, the experience with windows 10 sucks, afaict, 1/4 Windows 10 users willing to dump this for Mac OS X anyime provided that Mac OS X license is within their reach,

the entry into Mac world is high, but if Apple willing to sell Mac OS X license cheap USD 50 ( eg. zero support, probably with some attached hardware limitation rules like, only for I5 and below processor, 16GB memory max, 6 TB hard disk max )

If Windows 10 chooses not to go lite, minimalistic, respect users' privacies, ask users instead of forcing them to accept configured choices, this Windows 10 gonna die, hopefully very soon.

And these new nailing experience assistants won't simply let you pick it up and start hammering things. Instead they will require you to register and login to the manufacturers website, then download the latest updates. then require you to wait five minutes while they install and reboot. But still you can't begin hammering anything, you are forced to accept license agreements and warnings about the the potential dangers of using it. Now that you think you have got to the point to begin the actual task you want to complete (i.e. hammer something) you are told this model had not been scanned for malware, please wait while this is in progress ...

So finally you manage to hammer something. Each time you strike a blow you are asked to rate your experience, and invited to post a picture on some social network. You are shown ads for more expensive models. Every strike is logged, recorded and uploaded to the Internet to allow for future experience enhancement.

If you ever try to use it outside of "active hours" you'll find it unresponsive pending updates and enhancements.

And when the maker decides that they need to make more money, they will drop support for your old model and force you to buy the latest model for a better experience.

I could accept all the new experience recommendation if, IF the hammer company ask me before all these BS, allow me to choose if I want to try their new feature experience or not, respect my selection, I could go to their website and sign up slow advertisement if I want them later,

This kinda forcing hammer company preferred changes onto everybody is bullying. One day probably I run a campaign to throw windows 10. Laughing

The makers won't ever ask for permission, they will do whatever they want because they are in control of your stuff.

The general business practice of re-branding I object to: company has product/service A and can't find ways to increase revenue by modifying A. So, company decides to re-brand A as B (B being an inferior thing which enhances the revenue stream). New customers are unaware of the change and think B is A. Old customers are lead to believe B is also A+. Reality is that B is A-.

Look for it - most large companies are guilty of this marketing crap.
